My self cleaning locks will not disengage


This is a really common problem with a lot of the newer ovens. It is so common, I have to suggest that owners NEVER use the cleaning cycle before the holidays! Here are basic steps to reset any model:

1) You might have the oven scheduled for cleaning. If so, clear that.

2)You also might have a child safety lock that was put on by accident. Look for a little lock on the screen, clear it.

3) If none of the above works, go to your breaker box and shut the power off for at least 15 minutes. Flip the power back on. It should reset the electronics.

4) Reset the oven to clean cycle again, but for a 10-15 minute period. It may reset and release the latch.

If you have a digital readout screen, look to see if there are Function errors. They indicate that there is a problem with the erc or can give specific parts to look at. If "door activated" is lit, look for a door switch on the front of the oven. Press it while holding in the cancel button.

There are 3 types of locks. Heat sensor based (has an arm you can move), motorized and solenoid controlled. Solenoid controlled buzz when you set them, and motorized can make mechanical sounds.

On free standing models, motorized and heat sensor locks can be accessed by taking off the top of your stove. The solenoid is normally located in back. T

If this is the first time you used the cleaning cycle, the oven can take a long time to cool down to release the lock, so make sure you give it enough time.

Please unplug or disconnect power at the breaker before attempting to remove the lock. I hope this was helpful. You can leave comments and questions during the ratings process. I always answer, but they take a while to post. Thanks.

Fridgidare PLES389DCB top left rear element stopped heating after a bright flash from under the top. Looked like it shorted out, now the right rear element flashed undr the top. it didn't stop working yet...


hmmm..flashes under the top(as in the hood)..I suspect you have some faulty wiring. Only way to find out..

unhook power

remove hood/top

visually inspect wires for fraying or cuts(sometimes critters will do this too)

report back, ok?

I can set temp, and see a glow through the bottom of the oven, but no heat. Also a slight gas smell is present


Hi, the problem here is a bad igniter, Even though you are seeing it glow it is old and not getting up to temp. A good way to check would be to look at the color the igniter is glowing. If the igniter is glowing bright yellow to the point where you cant look at it then it's good. If it is glowing an uneven yellow/orange it's bad replace it. If you have any additional questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Gas oven wil not unlock after cleaning


Hello. I may be able to assist you. There are several possible fixes to your problem. Hopefully one of these will work for you. The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Most ranges today use 3 different types of door locks...one is a solenoid controlled lock ( you hear a loud buzz noise when setting or unlocking the lock and has a arm that you must move to set the lock )...another is a heat sensitive lock ( has a arm that you must move to lock and un-lock, makes no noises and has a spring that slowly moves to lock the door will the oven is heating up )...Some locks are motorized ( no handle to move, the motor locks the door by it's self when you set the range for self clean )... If the motorized and heat sensitive locks fails to open after the self clean cycle, you must access the lock and move it yourself to open the door. On the free standing ranges, most times you must lift the cook top to access the lock mechanism. On built in ovens, the oven must be pulled out to remove the top access panel to get at the lock mechanism. Some build in ovens can have the control console removed to access the lock system. On the heat sensitivestyle of lock, there are no electrical parts to operate the lock, usually you will need to replace the lock. On the motorized style of lock, you will have to use a ohm/volt meter to test why the motor will not work. On the solenoid style of lock, the solenoid is often mounted on the back of the range and can be accessed by removing the rear panel, some may be mounted at the front, such as in a built in oven. The failure of the solenoid style of lock is normally caused by a bad lock solenoid. In order to get your door open, you must operate the door latch mechanism manually. Unplug or remove power from the range. Take the rear cover off the range. Locate the door latch assembly and operate it manually and open your door. Then check continuity of the solenoid. Some of the latch assemblies have micro switches to supply power also. You may need to check them. You should be able to get the door open and use your range until you can get a tech to repair if you can not repair yourself.

I have a Kenmore oven, F2 error, not heating, fan not running!


Looking up your fault code and this is what I found :

replace oven control (also called clock or ERC). It's the temp control unit for the oven, this could explain your lack of heat.

If you've interrupted the clean cycle or have accidentally set the clean cycle with the oven door open, the latch may have engaged and now the door can't be closed because it will hit the latch. There may be a door activated* switch on the front face of the oven. In this case you may need to manually press that door switch with your finger while at the same time canceling the clean cycle to get the latch to retract so the door can close fully again.
*On -some- Frigidaire built ranges, the switch is located behind the right hand side panel and activated by the right hand door hinge. On this model, the side panel may need to be removed to access a malfunctioning door switch.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Stove 2001 i cleaned my sove but the lock never released and i cant close the oven.


The lock motor may have failed. On many freestanding stoves the lock motor is located in the right rear (looking from the front) with a long rod connected to the lock. remove the motor and unhook the rod from the motor cam to operate the lock manually
